12. Ford F-150 Raptor
If the first Raptor lacked acceleration, the second generation managed to earn the crown back for Ford. The latest Ford Raptor includes a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 with 450 HP and 510 lb-ft. It also has a 10-speed automatic transmission with sub-five-second acceleration times. Although that suggests it’s an exotic supercar, it’s also a full-size truck with room for five people and a regular bed. The Raptor is the closest thing to a full Baja 1000 racing vehicle drivers can buy today (via Edmunds). The truck-buying public didn’t expect such a move, but they were fascinated by the truck’s looks, performance, and capability.
The idea behind the Raptor was to construct the fastest off-road truck money could buy. Ford did just that, installing numerous chassis and suspension upgrades as well as a powerful engine. The best thing about the Raptor is that Ford prepared an extreme off-road truck with a customer warranty. With multiple driving modes, a 10-speed automatic gearbox, and an adaptive suspension, you can take this truck rock crawling. Ford did a great job of combining the toughness of an extreme off-road truck with the usability of a regular pickup.
